Blending in: Walk through a day
in the life of a homeless man

Finding food and clothing around town isn’t too challenging thanks to local missions, Tom Rogers says, but finding shelter is a big concern.

Tom Rogers first spent a night without a roof over his head about a year ago. He'll never forget it.

Rogers explains the basics of what it means to be homeless: what he does all day, where he finds food, how he stays clean (and blends in) and more.
